I just want to state that I could not take my eyes off the screen until the very end of this fine drama. I had a vague recollection of having seen it before but fortunately no clear memory of how it ended. The ending actually is somewhat anti-climactic given the intensity of the previous scenes.
Dialogue is quick: more often seen in a theatrical production than in a feature film. But this is not surprising given the source material.
